On the other hand, it’s a good time to keep connected with people. From what I’m seeing online these days, art-making and creativity of all kinds are getting a major boost which is certainly nice to see. For me, the past month of physical distancing has brought many 'momentum swings'. From creating new work to art history study (see Métis artist Christi Belcourt's painting below) to brushing up my artist statement and maintaining web and social media activity, here are a few highlights of what's been happening.

My Art is now on Etsy!
When someone happened to ask me last week "is your art on Etsy", and I said "no", it made me wonder if it should be. Given that the physical locations where my work is for sale are now all closed or delaying their summer season openings, it didn't take me long to decide an Etsy shop might be another great way to connect with art lovers. Have a look—I'd love to know what you think!

Milestone moment: 100+ pieces of art!
Sometime in the past month the number of pieces listed here in my artwork archive surpassed 100. As of today, there are 104 items!
Inspiration for moving forward
I think we have all been wondering, "How much of what we are experiencing right now will shift how we feel about everything in the future?." That's what this painting, Freedom Under the Stars, posted recently by Métis artist Christi Belcourt made me think about when I read what she said about it. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did...
"We shall dance under the stars again, you and I. Knowing now in our souls what freedom is. Even the mosquitos will be welcome friends as we sit close to one another around a fire and laugh, forgetting the time when we were separated." - Christi Belcourt
